" -- guest: they traveled to iraq together when president obama was just candidate barack obama. they have a similar world via. he has been serving as the -- on the intelligence advisory board code-share. they get along. he is likely to implement his policies. he has a great personal relationship with him. host: what about the confirmation process for the forming the senator -- for the former senator? there has been a vote count out there the right now there are senators that oppose him. guest: i would not trust any vote count. most senators lamont's commit before they have had a chance to properly is that the nomination. what we do know is there are about five senators who promised to vote no on his nomination. they are republicans, which is ironic because when he was in the senate he was a repu
that meets the aspirations of the syrian people. in the u.s. the former republican senator chuck hagel is expected to be nominated as the defense secretary. he has proven to be a controversial choice. >> he spent the last three years advising president obama on key defense issues. he is very outspoken. on the iraq war he once called the strategy a game of pingpong. on the issue of nuclear issues he said, how is it you can have -- you cannot have them but we can? chuck hegel calls for talks with hamas, and that raised a red flag among many republicans worried about how he could be in charge of the one-on-one military relationship between the u.s. and israel, having made comments like that. president obama arrived from hawaii. he is also the before a fight. the u.s.-u.n. ambassador susan rice, republicans would have none of her because of the way she handled the been gauzy situation. president obama is saying, i am putting up chuck paypal. he is not withdrawing his name, so republicans if you wish to vote against him, that is up to you. mitch mcconnell says when chuck hagel comes up for
it for some people but not the rest of them? chuck hagel the guy who is going to fix all of this, right? >> john: true. chuck hagel one thing i will say for the man he seems like he will be a huge advocate for veterans rights. isn't this a victory for lgbt? >> a huge victory. the problem in the inconsistency in the obama administration, why did it take the aclu to take this to court? >> why indeed. >> john: trisha, i have a question for you. according to ppp congress now has a favorable rating of 9%. chlamydia is at 12%. why is congress's rating this low after bringing us back from the fiscal cliff? >> i think any time you consistently see petty self-interests ideological warfare, no interest in the common good and a profound disengagement from the everyday citizen who is suffering enormously. i'm not talking just about the very, very bottom. i'm talking all the way through all of the class -- very class ranks up until the lofty 5%. everyone below that is in such deep crisis that any time you see this kind of jockeying and supporting policies for mobility for wealth for the rich, it is
's a close relationship between the president and chuck hagel. i have traveled with him. i understand it but i also understand that chuck has the wherewithal and the ability to speak truth to power. >> what is his view of america's role in the world? whether he really believes that the surge was the worst blunder since the vietnam war, that clearly is not -- that's not correct. i mean, that's -- in fact, it's bizarre. >> hey, guys, how are you? how are you doing, man? how are you doing? good to see you. >> i challenge to you say on what basis are you still a republican? do you feel like this republican party has left you or have you left it? >> i think the republican party right now is having an identity problem. and i'm still a republican. but in recent years, there's been a significant shift to the right and we have seen what that shift has produced, two losing presidential campaigns. i think what the republican party needs to do now is take a very hard look at itself and understand that the country is changed. there's also a dark -- a dark vein of intolerance in some parts of the p
. does that mean you're going to be upset with your likely new boss, chuck hagel, who argues for a smaller budget? thank you. [laughter] >> well, first off, i'm not sure what the president would announce today, and if i did know, i wouldn't scoop him on that. i'm smart enough not to do that. [laughter] and i think if it's senator hagel, we will work with him, and we will work with the american people. defense budgets are about risk. you get a certain amount of money, you get a certain amount of risk. if the country decides they want to take some more risk, we can go with lower budgets. we'll need to work with whoever is the nominee today, and assuming that person is confirmed, to try to make those trade-offs. they're hard to do, but we'll find another way to do them. >> a hand in that same row? okay. further back all the way to the wall, please. >> [inaudible] broadcasting. on the pacific realignment defense bill -- [inaudible] money for guam and okinawa because there's no -- [inaudible] the department has submitted to congress, and the senate and house have been saying this
as secretary of state, jack lew to replace timothy geithner and chuck hagel to as secretary of defense. tinny, good to see you. happy new year. >> happy new year to you, too. >> nice to see you. what do you make of the reshuffle? >> well, they are not surprising choices. there's a lot of discussion about whether obama's second term means changes or continuity. i'd use another key term which is consolidation. i think his cabinet are loyalists and insiders. they'll help move forward the agenda. there isn't a lot of change here. >> hillary clinton is going. >> again, i think you will see the perpetuation of the policy priorities that we've seen in the first term. in fact, many would say that the obama administration's foreign policy have been one of its most successful areas. he was long fit for this post, kerry, that is. >> you have set this up on raising the debt ceiling, wider agreement over getting any kind of grand bargain. where do we now go? he has his new team. >> not yet. they need to be confirmed. >> they need to be confirmed, obviously, but as we head towards a debt ceiling which has

republicans put out a statement opposing chuck hagel. >> they are opposing him. and barbara boxer is even like i'm going to take a wait and see attitude. and it goes back to a comment that bill clinton made. hagel said this he said they are representing america, our lifestyles and values, and i think chuck hagel is aggressively gay. >> jennifer: right. but he has apologized. >> yes 14, 15 years later when he is being nominated as secretary of defense. so he'll come home but there will be public gravelling. >> jennifer: and you have same-sex marriage efforts across the country. you have don't ask don't tell off the books. is sexual orientation going to an issue that really rallies the gay community? >> the log cabin republicans are wants to get their name off there a little bit. but hagel did oppose gays in the military, saying the u.s. armed forces are not some sort of social experiment. so he will also get nailed on that. he will spend a good portion of his hearing apologizing for things he did in the past. >> jennifer: but jerry brown do you think he will run for a se
